Stansted Airport

Status Completed 1991
Size 85,700m2 (terminal building)
Practice Foster & Partners

The overall scheme involved the creation of the new airport terminal building, railway station and ancillary buildings for BAA.  The terminal building makes use of a serviced undercroft and roof umbrella system, creating a light flooded concourse where the airport ‘engine room’ is completely hidden from the view of passengers.   This design has provided a model for terminal planning and design around the world.
